I decided I would try one new dish a week for meal times. Last week's was not a success (hence I didn't blog about this then!) but this week was a different matter. I tried my hand at toad in the hole, not just any toad in the hole but Jamie Oliver's toad in the hole. Now I have never eaten this dish before but oh boy! have I been missing out! It was so yummy and perfect comfort food for a Friday evening. Even Josh had some and he has to be the fussiest eater in the house!
The gravy was a little vinegary due to the balsamic vinegar and I have since found another recipe of Jamie's for a deconstructed version in my new Christmas book below which has an apple and onion gravy so will be trying that one next :) The above picture is Jamie's I hasten to add not mine - I will remember to take a picture next week!
I have also felt in the mood for baking this year so will be trying more recipes particularly from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. Yesterday I tackled the lemon loaf and took it into work today and it went down extremely well. Not sure I can commit to one baking session a week but I'll give it a go!
Would love to hear from anyone else who has recipes to recommend. Off to look for something to try this week....
